Whenever I am asked questions about my faith and beliefs – I always point to God’s Word as written in the Bible. But what if someone puts no confidence in the Bible?. What if my ultimate resource for proof is something they don’t believe is true?
I have often referred people to Josh McDowell’s book, “More than a Carpenter” for historical, archaeological and credible evidence that supports the belief that the Bible is not only true…but it is indeed the inspired word of God.
But today, I got an email with this brief summary that says it all in just a few simple…but profound…paragraphs.
Read on and judge for yourself.
A student was told…you must choose 66 books, written by 40 different authors, over 1500 years, in 3
different languages, written on 3 different continents. However, they must
share a common storyline, a common theme, and a common message, with no
historical errors or contradictions.” I went on to say, “If you can produce
such a collection of books, I will admit that the Bible is not the inspired word
of God.” The student’s reply was almost instantaneous, he emphatically stated,
“But that’s impossible!”
It truly is impossible, for any collection of human writings. However, the Bible
passes this test. The Bible contains 66 books, written by 40 different authors,
over 1500 years, in 3 different languages, on 3 different continents, with no
historical errors or contradictions. The entire Bible, from Genesis
to Revelation, bears the mark of Divine inspiration.
Not sure…begin reading the Bible for yourself and discover just how life-altering the truths in the Bible can be…it is not just a bunch of old-time sotries and parables…but truly the most profuond way for God to speak to us…and show us just how much he truly love us.
